Lesson 08: I go over how to use the LOS tool, how to set colors to indicate clear, hindered, or blocked LOS, how to turn on verbose mode to display additional LOS information, and the difference between normal LOS checks and Silent LOS checks.

Consider a part 2 where you discuss elevation.
Thanks. I think this is on my list of things to circle back for as an advanced topic. Right now I'm trying to get through the basics to help people get going.

Note that it’s a known and reported issue that the LOS tool is broken. If you save a game or if you use the Terrain SSR for walls/hedges it breaks the LOS tool on all maps for both Windows 10 and MacOS.

My understanding is that Doug is on it.

The workaround is to reselect the boards but don’t use the Terrain SSR or save the game as this will again break the LOS tool.

Thanks for the info. The LOS tool is the one thing we constantly have problems with. I hope a fix comes soon.
